Councillor Juliet Davies, Pednor

Chairman Councillor Juliet Davies (Pednor)

I used to work for Liberty's as Head of Merchandising for the Branch Operation. Now I coach in Latin and occasionally Greek, having previously run a free after-school Latin club at Great Missenden Primary School for 13 years on a voluntary basis. I have also taught Latin at Dr Challoner's High School. In the last 16 years I have run clubs at Quainton Primary, Hawridge and Cholesbury Primary and Chesham Preparatory Schools. I have four children ranging in ages from 25 to 13 and a Labrador. I reported to the Parish Council on the School Transport Consultation. I am especially interested in the problems which arise in the Pednor area where I live, in particular the issue of salt piles for safe winter driving on our single track un-gritted lanes. I have been a Parish Councillor since 2008. Email: jamd.pednor@btinternet.com

Councillor Ellie White (Chartridge)

Vice Chair Councillor Ellie White (Chartridge)

I have lived at Chartridge End Farm all my life and consider it a great privilege to be able to work and raise a family in such a wonderful locality. As a Councilor, I am keen to maintain the environment and facilities in our parish for all ages. I work full time on our family farm but also enjoy spending time with my family and walking the fantastic countryside of the Chilterns. Email: chartridgefarm@tiscali.co.uk

A Booth

Councillor Alan Booth  (Chartridge)

I have lived in the Chilterns for more than a decade. Prior to that I spent time in London and Cardiff, grew up next to the Peak District on the outskirts of Sheffield and also lived in Leeds, Brussels, Belgium and Sydney, Australia.
Running a small business providing newspaper, magazine and graphic design services, my career has primarily been in the print media, working for a long time at Dow Jones and the Wall Street Journal with a smaller stint at the Sunday Times — among other publications. Elected in May 2015, as a Green councillor, I am passionate about environmental politics, sustainability, clean and renewable energy. As a business owner — which is ‘virtual’ — I believe in the roll-out of reliable, affordable, high-speed broadband options in rural areas and the expansion of tele-working. Married with three children, I take part in community activities through the residents’ association, also helping to set-up and run the weekly café from the Chartridge Reading Rooms, on Wednesday mornings. In my spare time I swim and I coach rugby league, to under 10s, with the Hemel Stags.

Peter Brown (Bellingdon)

I moved into Bloomfield Cottages as a one-year-old and have spent my life as a passionate villager of Bellingdon. I was a playing member of both football and cricket clubs, captaining and then manager of the Football Club. I spent 10 years on the Village Hall committee including six wonderful years as Chairman, helping to make the Village Hall what it is now. I want to see the Parish thrive under what are fast becoming cutbacks by central government and to keep control of our costs to our electorate. I own my business in Chesham and am now 75% retired from work.
I have served the PC for over 20 years and recently stepped down as Chairman after 13 years in office. I am the Financial Director of Chesham Utd FC and Chairman of Watford Supporters Trust Ltd. Email: taffypeter@hotmail.co.uk

Councillor Alan Booth, Chartridge

Councillor Chris Howell  (Chartridge)

Married and with two children now in University, I have lived in the Chilterns for over 40 years and in Chartridge for 23. It is a special area and I wish it to stay that way whilst accommodating sympathetic and necessary developments. Chartridge residents were given land to use as a playing field and a small village hall and I am happy to be involved in keeping these in good order for the benefit of all villagers. Having spent 30 years in the sales of specialist papers and products, I now design and create landscape projects from time to time. A keen Gardener, I am also passionate about traditional materials and techniques which I use in the restoration and repair of ancient buildings.Email: chris@henryhowell.com

Councillor Peter Jones (Chartridge)

I've lived in The Warren, Chartridge since 1987 and have been a Parish Councillor since 1991. I was a Governor at Chartridge School for 23 years. I am also the Chiltern District Councillor for Ballinger, South Heath and Chartridge.. I work in the printing industry. My wife, Katy, and I are keen walkers so the state of local footpaths is important to us. Email: peter.m.jones@btinternet.com

Coucillor Derek Keen, Bellingdon

Councillor Derek Keen (Bellingdon)

I am a semi-retired gardener , have been married to Doris for over 45 years, have 2 children and 2 grandchildren and have lived in Asheridge & Bellingdon all my life.
I am particularly keen on the real local issues such as managing speeding in rural areas, introducing affordable housing for village people, highway and verge maintenance and perhaps securing delegated budget to do small jobs like drain clearing and hedge cutting ourselves – it seems to take an age to for higher authority to get such jobs done.Email: derekkeen257@btinternet.com

Councillor Joan Lherbier, Asheridge

Councillor Joan Lherbier (Asheridge)

I have lived in Chartridge Parish on and off all my life and now live in my childhood home in Asheridge. I have been a councillor since 2003. I represent the Parish Council on Bucks County Council's Local Area Forum and at meetings of our Neighbourhood Policing Team. My particular interest is in "on the ground" projects such as the current work to open up a footpath in Bellingdon to ramblers with mobility difficulties and, as another example, our successful battle in 2006 to have Asheridge put back onto a winter salting route and to keep it there. Before leaving the area for a while I worked at Chesham Police Station as a civilian communications officer, a grand title for telephonist and radio operator! My husband is French and we brought up our family in France, where I taught English in schools. I have two daughters, a stepson and three grandchildren. When my husband retired, we returned to Asheridge and I started my own company, French teaching and translation. I focus particularly on teaching and coaching children and teenagers.
